Liked: Everything is good, big common area so you will have a chance to meet other traveller. Internet connection is good, decoration is also well done. Location is the key convenience to everything. Hosted is nice and hostel is clean. Very recommended to stay here and will definitely stay here again.

Disliked: Lack of signage but it's a local regulations prohibited that so I don't really compliant. Make sure you have a good print map or coin to call the hostel in case of you can't find it.

Liked: - Amazing location, best aspect of this hostel hands down! 2 minute walking distance from the subway station, walking distance to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial, an ABUNDANCE of food options ALL OVER the block, 24 hour convenience stores all around - Good sized hostel, very easy to meet fellow travelers and explore the city - Owner is a very friendly and happy guy, gave lots of great advice - Great common area with Large TV, guitar, comfy couches, movies - Shower was nice washrooms were clean

Disliked: - AC was broken and even though a technical guy was called to look into it, unfortunately the issue wasn't resolved - There is no reception desk (as with almost every Taipei hostel) so you might have to wait in the common room before you can check in

Liked: The hostel is very nice. I liked everything about it. It's really cozy with all the possible facilities and very welcoming atmosphere.

Disliked: Just one small detail: they don't explain properly how to get there from the nearest MRT and I got a little bit lost. In addition to this, the stuff should know better how to get to te airport from the hostel.... I got the wrong directions....

Liked: Checking in late at night was no problem. The free wifi is cool, and the staff are friendly. It was quiet in the mornings, and the below-ground rooms stay nice and dark.

Disliked: There were some noisy guests in the common area--- not a fault of the hostel itself, but I wish they'd done more to control the noise. Also, the TV always seemed to be on.

Liked: TaipeiTaipei is a relatively new hostel conveniently located near Guting MRT in the university district. It offers all facilities needed when travelling - internet acces, kitchen with fridge, laundry facilities, lockers, lounge, comfy beds, hair dryer. 24h access.

Disliked: I would definetely stayed there again after they have updated and revised their emergency lightings and exits. While staying in the basement offers several advantages like a quiet, dark and cool room for a good night's sleep, having only one evacuation route which is not marked at all and leading upstairs past the kitchen area and no further way out like ex. a evacuation ladder through the living room glass roof doesnt feel too safe in earthquake-prone Taiwan. Except for that, a brilliant and secure place.

Liked: I absolutely love this place! It's a cozy, small-size hostel with atmosphere and extremely friendly stuff. It is quiet, yet I got to talk to many friendly and interesting people from both the stuff and guests.

Disliked: The only minor problem I can think of: most of the rooms don't have windows and if you don't set alarm, you find yourself still sleeping at 12 :)

Liked: very homely atmosphere, feels like you're living at someone's home. and as soon as you come in, you'll have to wear slippers, so it's very clean.

Disliked: hard to find: no sign at all! had to ask people in the neighbourhood. all the rooms are underground rooms, so no windows, but it not a big problem, you get get enough sunlight in the kithchen and bathroom area.

Liked: The staff were friendly, pretty knowledgeable and seemed to care about what you needed and liked chatting in general. I liked that it was a small hostel and the owner was a super nice guy.

Disliked: The rooms were in a basement, with no windows, I found it slightly off putting, but that was fairly minor.
